in castleville, utah. you know, the biggest issue we're facing in this country is the debt and deficit. we have to solve this, and i think orrin and i would both agree, we have to go back and make some very challenging cuts. now, i've always supported the simpson-bowles. i believe that is the beginning that we have to implement it. but, ladies and gentlemen, if we don't fix this debt and deficit, your future and my future and more importantly our children and our grandchildren will be at such a challenge, they'll never enjoy the blessings and benefits that we've had in this country. i believe that we have to immediately implement changes, and one of the things is to look at our defense carefully. when we spend $300 million a day, we can no longer afford that. we have to go through and do a performance review on each and every department within the federal government to insure that we're getting effective, efficient government and that technology is used in order to give the return on taxpayers, something that hasn't happened for the last 36 years. >> moderator: senator hatch. hatch: well, i app

[applause] he wants sensible regulations, for the auto companies and to make sure we can get the auto companies on their feet and make sure trade is fair. he wants worker retraining to work b

for the call. robert gleason, i will have you respond to the issue of taxes and the deficit. guest: people in america do not want to raise taxes. the way to get the deficit under control is to spend less money. we have been taxed enough. grover norquist does a good job. our governor said the same thing. stop spending. host: a democrat from pennsylvania is on the line. caller: my question is for robert gleason. suit. pat toomey voted against a bill he helped write. how am i ever going to vote for republicans when they vote against a bill for political guest: i do not know about that bill. pat toomey is a strong supporter of veterans and jobs. but, you know what? he wants to stop spending money. that is why he was sent to washington, to get the costs under control. we as a country -- barack obama has us trillions of dollars in debt. we have had trillion dollar deficit. we cannot do this anymore. it is killing our country. that is why this election is between mitt romney, a businessman, who knows how to run an organization. the scope josh, can you break this down? -- host: josh, can you break

? >> it is amazing to me you can stand here having voted for chilean dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest increase in american history and say we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending. with respect to cut, a cap, and balance, capping the ability of congress to spend money we do not have, balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra. that is why support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> it is one of the races you can follow on c-span, c-span radio, and online. >> as hurricane sandy proceeds, there are still in the bates across the country. rhode island will hold a debate between david and the republican challenger. our coverage of that debate begins thursday at 7:30 p.m. eastern. mitt romney asked supporters to help victims affected by hurricane sandy. he was joined by a congressman from ohio. this is 37 minutes. ♪ >> avon lake. i say, avon lake is fired up today. thank you all for being here. and i want to thank mary taylor to make sure ohio meets its
for president obama. you know that he promised bipartisanship and to reduce the deficit by half. you know that he was going to give us accountable government. he said he would reduce the health insurance by $2,500. today we have -- we had promises of economic recovery. this president today has not delivered on his promises of 2008. that is reason enough to have him not be president of united states. he has not delivered. [applause] it is very clear that america cannot afford four more years obamanomics. and the abuse of power by pointing many of his own party and executive orders be on the constitution. -- beyond the constitution. we will have a new president obama -- pardon me, i mean, president runomney. $814 steel is that did not work. -- stimulous that did not work. worst economic problems america has faced since world war ii. 23 million people looking for full-time jobs. under an employment a 40% of the economy. -- underemployment making up 40% of the economy. many people on food stamps. that is the failure, but americans are not quitters. we can turn the ship around and we will turn

on november 6. when barack obama ran for president he said we will cut the deficit in half. the deficit is now $1 trillion this year. he has added 50% to our debt to the point that it has gone to $16 trillion. it does not -- does that is working to you? and when he pushed to the health care bill through, he said, if you pass this legislation, we will reduce health-care costs. the reduction will be about $2,500. it actually has increased costs by about $2,500. does this sound like it is working? we are in the right place. and then the stimulus package, when he said i want a trillion dollars of your money, he took our money plus the bar a bunch from china. he said let's put a trillion dollars and see what happens. he says today unemployment would be 15% lower than it is. that is 9 million jobs short. does this sound like it's working? it is not. what is even more discouraging is looking at what he wants to do over the next four years. it is more of the same. there are some exceptions. he has protected and our jobs and ensure we have the military second to none to keep the peace. i get to work wi
a question. look, the biggest issue that faces the country is the debt and deficit. we're going to have to make tough discussions. those decisions can't be played politics with is your first question talked about jay. we have to have a big robust plan, i would around $4 to $5 closer to $5 trillion that takes in to account everything. it there are a lot of templates. i could list them. the fact there's a lot of work being done with this. i hope during the lame duck we gate a great start. it's a huge issue for jobs and the future of the current. these are canary in the mine shaft. we need move forward with a good policy that will impact not only montana but the whole country. do it in a responsible way to move our economy guard. that is really the number one issue we need to be working on once this election is over. it should be -- it's being worked on as we speak too. >> moderator: congressman ray bergs. rehberg: thank you. the first piece of legislation i passed was a balance budget requirement for the federal government. the first piece of legislation is whatever it takes to repeal oba
, it is our deficit. it is $16.20 trillion today. at the first debate it was $16 trillion. i agree with heidi, we cannot have partisan politics. the way we saw this is we have a budget. the senate has not had a budget for three years. that is where the partisanship come said. if we are on to solve a small business problem, the first step is you need a budget. harry reid has refused to bring a budget up for three years. we cannot solve this budget problem that alone ballots at if we cannot have the senate majority leader, to my opponent has endorsed to try to work out a solution. this is the most critical thing, and here is how we saw that -- number 1, we need a budget that comes to closure so people can see we are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature

dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years and with respect to cut gap and balance it's amazing to me also this idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare and education and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. e. republican congressman robert dold and democratic challenger brad schneider are in a tight race for the tenth congressional district. it covers an area along part of michigan in the northern chicago severs. representative dold is running for a second term and brad schneider is the founder of the management controlling firm. the two candidates recently sat down for a debate, courtesy of chicago's wttw tv.
in here at the white house for a big deficit reduction and debt reduction package. >> narrator: bipartisanship was long buried. now there was open antagonism. >> when that collapsed and when that ended up in that terribly muddy compromise that nobody liked, i think that was the turn. i think at that point he and everybody around him decided, "this isn't working and we're not going to work this way." >> and the american people i think are fed up with political posturing and an inability for politicians to take responsible action as opposed to dodge their responsibilities. >> we've seen his approval ratings on the economy dip... >> narrator: three and half years after he came to washington on a promise of change... >> obama is under 50% approval rating... >> narrator: ... barack obama returned to the campaign trail himself changed. >> a difficult road ahead for the president... >> i think you see today a president obama with a thicker skin, more jaundiced eyes, has grown more skeptical, even cynical perhaps, about washington. >> no president has been reelected with this type of e
deficit as long as we manage them properly. we manage them after world war two. ii. president reagan exploded the debt. we were doing well as a world powerhouse during that time. if it is to manage, i do not see a balanced budget amendment as a necessity. i had a look at it following a radio debate between these two. the problem with h.r. 1861 is it is a drill baby drill sort of bill. it gives away a lot to big oil and fossil fuels. we should not put that money toward those industries anymore. we should shift that money into s.newable source and formulat >> that brings us to a topic often referred to by some as a green jobs boondoggle that has been exercised by the obama ministration. they point to the solar panel manufacturing and california. it received some less money to go under. in massachusetts, it was evergreen solar that went bankrupt. to do you think that the government is trying to pick winners and losers in this field? >> i have heard that before. i do not believe in that idea. i believe in a comprehensive policy. the united states is not have that. for a number of things.
secretary writing on a camel in the movie deficit in february. and he was still mad about the trip when i talked to him. anyway, i'm glad to be here. sandy did not keep me awake at and to with colleagues with whom i've shared many professional and personal experiences. [inaudible] a quick note on the role of assistant secretary of state, i don't know how my colleagues feel, but of all the jobs i've had i thought that was the most demanding in the most challenging. the most dramatic was being with henry kissinger on a lot of escapades. the most fun with him ambassador to but the most grueling i believe was assistant secretary. i have both a macro and micro example of challenges, but with time i will say that china road goes was a macro challenge. we can come back to that because that was quite a challenge during my time in office. the macro one is really shared by all of us. that is to get the attention of this region that it deserves. now, every regional assistant secretary tries to do that from a parochial standpoint. in our case at least in the last two decades, the fact it's so importa
neighborhoods as these sinkholes of need. they have all these deficits and all of these problems and we're just going to send resources after resources into the sinkhole in order to try to make them productive citizens and workers and family members ideally by the time they're 18 or 19 and that is highly disrespectful to very confident, capable, self-reliant kids but also it means we are taking their most productive years when they are early adolescents, crossing this boundary, who knows so much about what their communities need and what they are lacking and they are not shy about telling you the park is dangerous and they are more likely to get murdered their than play a basketball game, there are no jobs, the health care services are lousy. they can tell you what needs to be done and if we would have the confidence in schools to say we will help you make these differences and changes now when you are 14 or 15, you have a lot of energy and the law time on your hands, we have a school in the community, we will teach you how to make a difference and how to make this park safer, not just to clean
